Former MHS star to be inducted into CSUS Hall of Fame

Manteca High alumnus Paul Brogan will be inducted into the Cal State Stanislaus Athletics Hall of Fame on Feb. 19 at the campus’ main dining hall.

The 2011 class is the first to be honored at Cal State Stanislaus in five years.

A 1984 graduate and former hoops standout at Manteca, Brogan played two seasons at Modesto Junior College — where he is in his 10th season as the school’s men’s basketball coach — and established himself as one of Cal State Stanislaus’ all-time greats in 1987-89.

Brogan was named co-MVP of the now-defunct Northern California Athletic Conference his senior year, when he led the Warriors to the NCAA Division II West Regionals championship and the national quarterfinals.

A few of his school records still stand, most notably the 133 3-pointers made in just two years. He converted on 46.8 percent of his attempts from long range, and his 47.5-percent mark in 1987-88 is the single-season record. Brogan posted 15 20-point games as a senior, also a record.

Among his other achievements are a 39-point outburst — No. 2 for a single-game effort in program history — Whitter College on Dec. 2, 1988 and a string of 27 consecutive made free throws, a record that held up for 19 years.

Joining Brogan in the Cal State Stanislaus Athletics Hall of Fame this year are: Shannon Donnelly (1999-2003), the school’s most decorated women’s basketball player; All-American men’s golfers Nate Dunn (1995-98) and Lance Johnson (1992-94); two-sport standout Amanda Oliver (track and field, volleyball; 2000-04); supporter and volunteer Abe Rojas (1970-present); and seven-time track and field All-American Cole Sprague (2002-05).
